Disco Down

Disco Down

Often things just fall together, like this look that while starting out was not intended to be some party all night long Disco Diva look, it certainly ended up there effortlessly.

It started with the amazing dress by Baiastice that is at the coming round of Uber. It is plunging neckline and oh so high slits on the sides, with middle and back slits also. It is the dress that just lets you love the idea of items made for bodies – in this case the Slink Hourglass – where no alpha is required and you can just shimmy and shake it into the early hours of the next day, or if you are really good the day after that.

The necklace needed a little rotation to get it to work with the dress fit, but it so suits the look, the earrings that match also come in a colour option so perfect for the dress colour of Sangria that I am wearing. I needed an elegant updo that was not too frigid in looks, and this one by En Vogue suited the bill perfectly.

I am still addicted to my Mandala rings at the moment, and rightly so, what is not to love, the golds all tie in beautifully. Then I hit a little snag, it did not last long though, as the clutch I am wearing is mod, which meant instead of the silver sides, I was able to tint it a similar coral like colour and voila I am down and up and hitting the dance-floor.

Finishing it all off with the very decorative shimmer bead curtains by Maxi Gossamer. These are so cool, there are many colour options and I rezzed four and linked them together to create my background after I settled on my colours. The look great with different lighting and are just that perfect add on to any fun home, or party atmosphere.

A Muse Me

A Muse Me

Feeling a lot like a Grecian Muse today, this outfit was put together with the help of the birthday edition of Collabor88. This lovely dress is by Zenith, which has Slink physique and Hourglass options, with the baby-doll style of the dress, it is so swishy and girly. The roses and pearl detailing is remarkable.

The hair is a beautiful style by Tableau Vivant, that came with the delicate and very pretty hair chain attachment separately for different looks. The style is great for off the shoulder looks, giving you a real sense of the outfit.

I am wearing the Shana skin by Glam Affair that is a latest C88 release, I went with some custom black brows, so the skin does not look the same as you will get, so demo, demo, demo. Changing the metals of my beautiful Mandala rings to gold to work with this ensemble was a breeze as everything is included in the HUD.

Lastly the perfect garden like atmosphere with the swing and tree by Cheeky Pea that is at this round of Whimsical, and has a lovely collection of poses that work so well with it, but I did chose to stand and make use of one half of a couples pose by Purple Poses that is at this round of C88.

I want to eat the cake too

I want to eat the cake too

Ready to take down a kingdom, or to just spend the day being lavishly spoiled with Chocolate Truffles and Champagne. Mixing some lovely items from Collabor88 which is celebrating its Birthday this month…with a gorgeous new release by LeLutka if this stunning hair with flowers (separate attachment).

I am wearing a harness set is by Empire @ Fetish Fair, which is definitely a lot less mesh than you usually see on me, but the lovely pose/chair allowed for some modesty still. The hud for the harness has texture change options, and I loved being able to make the ruffles floral and keep the strapping solid, but you can go all floral or all solid, it is up to you, you can also leave the ruffles off if you prefer.

Jewellery wise, the rings sets by Mandala are divine, the stone inlay, the intricate metal work, all fit for a Queen, and they are made for particular hands in various sizes, so you should all be well covered.

The icing on the cake is the Masquerade mask by Yummy another C88 item, that just adds to the whole look and finishes it off perfectly.

Naturale

Naturale

Spending time outdoors is always a great part of Second Life, and what better way to do it, than with a stunning gazebo by Cheeky Pea. So many wonderful parts to the Kara set, that you can mix in with other pieces you may love. You have options to change the textures for the cushions, pillows and the throw blanket. I went with the natural colours, and the adorable nests and eggs just add to the outdoor charm.

I am definitely dressed up a little more than outdoorsy in this look, ready for an evening of fine wine and candlelight. The dress is a Cynful release for The Mesh Body Addicts Fair that is now on, and two sims full of mesh delights for all your body needs. This dress has three options of textures, solid, ombre and stripes, the ombre being the perfect look for this whole ensemble I put together.

I am wearing some amazing shoes that Mel bought me as a gift recently. They are Ella by Renegade, and if you do not already shop for shoes at Renegade, you definitely need to. They have such amazing texture work, materials options and lots of options for enhancements to the features, like buckles, soles etc. They are incredibly high, but with the help of hover you can stop yourself from sinking into the floor with ease.

The combination of colours of the shoes, the dress, all come together to highlight the statement necklace by Glam Affair that is at this round of Uber. Such a divine piece, that it really does compliment the strapless neckline of the dress.

Happy Bandana Day – 2016

Happy Bandana Day

Hair Fair 2016 ends tonight, so you have one last day of shopping to help us help Wigs for Kids. You also have the chance to rock around SL in your bandanas, the way we as a community show we care on this day each year.

Many residents have created these marvelous items so that you can purchase them for 50L and all proceeds go to Wigs for Kids. The bandanas and the donation kiosks all donate the full 100% to wigs for kids during this time. The bandanas are not available anywhere else, and will be removed from the grid at the end of the event so do not miss out.

This bandana creation is by LeLutka, and it is a stunning hat with scarf ensemble, that makes you feel very fancy indeed. I also added another neck scarf to the mix, so it all looks wrapped around and very stylish. There are three colour options of this bandana style. I purchased nearly all, I tend to get very excited by them each year, and find that they become lovely momentos of the event.

There is a bandana booth on each of the hair fair sims, and each booth has the same ones, so you do not have to visit them all to get the lot. In years past people have had bandana day parties, events at clubs and just fun gatherings to commemorate the day. I hope you and yours all have a great Bandana day, and thank you all so much for helping us each year do what we can for kids in need. It really makes for such a community effort and something that I am very honored to be a part of with Mel and Whimsy and all of the fantastic creators who give of their time and their talent each year.

Hair Fair 2016 – Elikatira

Hair Fair 2016 - Elikatira

Hair Fair and Elikapeka Tiramisu are hand in hand in my mind. It was because of Six Kennedy, and Elika welcoming me to the group that I was able to join in and be part of Hair Fair in 2007, and this many years later. It was the kindness of Elika allowing Fiachra and I to use her own bandana as a template style for making the first ever Hair Fair Bandanas, that made bandana day possible. It was her openness to new ideas, after that first year I was part of,  that made it possible to expand and grow as an event, and even though she was not able to continue on the committee over the years, she is always someone so important to us.

These three styles are so fun, so her, and I love how in each hud for each style, she has a little cameo like picture of the style itself, so there is no mistaking which hud is for which style, that extra effort, that makes it all work so well. Pink and Pink, Pink and Blonde, and Pink and Red, all of it works, but honestly I just love red heads wearing pink, it is a thing that many think is not supposed to be ‘acceptable’ but it so is, and can be a breathtaking look depending on the combination.

I am wearing a lovely halter top by Mimikri with the matching frill skirt that is just summery and delightful, as are all Mimikri items, she has a way of just knowing what you need, especially us girly girls.

Hair Fair 2016 – Mina

Hair Fair 2016 - Mina 3

Hair Fair 2016 closes on Sunday evening, so you only have a few days left to get your hair on, and help Wigs for Kids. Mina was also a tenant at The Deck for many years. She was great to catch up with in the sand every few weeks, and watching her take on bigger challenges with creating hair full time, as she had a mix of things she created in the beginning. We love having her at Hair Fair and I look forward to seeing more and more awesome from her.

These styles for Hair Fair are out of the ballpark fabulous! The shine on the textures, the styles that just let you show off your clothing – behind the shoulders styles are always great to have in your arsenal. The bangs, the overall sexiness of them all, really makes them go back and get hairs, if you did not already get them.

The romper I am wearing is actually black, the fun editing software managed to make it look navy…but nope Valentina. E did it to me again with the only four colours in this romper, and if there were more, I would definitely want more, WHERE IS THE RED – cries. It is so cute, it tricked me, at first I thought it was a cami and french knickers, but it is an all in one romper that just looks like you are jumping around SL in your undies, and it is SL so that is just a thing we do.
